2018 Kia Optima vs 2018 Mazda6

What are the advantages of a full-size sedan compared to that of a compact? Well, the 3 main reasons would be an increase in power, size, and style. Compact sedans lack the elegant profile, the finessed performance, and the more comfortable and luxurious cabin found in that of full-size sedans.

To demonstrate the importance of these effects, we've chosen 2 new full-size sedans on the market. That would be the 2018 Kia Optima and the 2018 Mazda6. Both exude a superior sense of confidence and power when compared to their compact counterparts of the Forte and Mazda3 respectively. However, which should you prefer? It's the 2018 Kia Optima vs the 2018 Mazda6!
